The Fernsehturm (English: Berlin TV Tower) is a television tower in central Berlin, near Alexanderplatz. The tower was constructed in the mid-to-late 1960s by the GDR (East German Government). Today, the Fernsehturm is celebrated as an important symbol of Berlin and is often featured in TV and films. The tower is visible throughout many districts and has become an easy way for residents and locals alike to orient themselves while navigating the city.
The TV Tower rises to a height of 368 meters (1200 ft) and is German’s tallest structure. The view is spectacular and a great way to see Berlin from a (much) different perspective. If you are interested in going inside, we highly recommend booking tickets to the lunch or dinner in the TV Tower restaurant. These spots fill up quick, so it’s best to book as soon as you know the dates you’re visiting Berlin. You can find more information about booking your TV Tower tickets at the bottom of this page.
